Each year The Somerville Mathematics Fund awards grants for teachers in Somerville MA who have great ideas for math activities in their classroom, for after school activities, or at a family math night. The grants are for materials and are for up to $500 each. Teachers who have won before are eligible to apply again as long as they have completed the follow-up paperwork for their previous grant.
The deadline is coming soon, 14 January 2013. So, I you have a great idea but don't have the money for materials in your classroom, go to our website and download the application.
